Every decision matters: Landy V drops the realness with ‘Believing in my Lies’

Showing true honesty with a personal story, Landy V is back with her hot new track called ‘Believing in my Lies‘, which will have you thinking deeply about how powerful your words and actions really are.

Landy V is a compelling Denver, Colorado-based singer/rapper, who performs with that inner passion to improve each day, be real to herself and raps with such skill and sings with illuminating beauty. She makes that music that has you looking inside the deepest part of your soul, which tells you to brush out all self-doubts into the trash can, so you can be finally free and be yourself no matter what anyone else says about you. This is your life after all, no theirs to judge, just because they are unhappy with whatever choices has defined them.

This is the story about how she fell into the fad-life trap for a while, but managed to thankfully unshackle herself through meditation and working things out mentally through extra effort. This is a determined woman who realized that she didn’t want to be like everyone else and instead, is totally steadfast to looking into the mirror each day and being proud of who she is, without feeling herself too much and losing touch with her soul.

The fiery raps lead you into her studio as she flows like a real pro, her voice is sumptuous and you can’t help but cheer for this fighter who has risen from the dust, to be on the road that she wants, not where other leads her into the detours that make you a copycat fake.

Believing in my Lies‘ from the wildly talented Denver emcee Landy V, is a sensation track about how you can sometimes get a bit too deep underwater with trying to be too fresh, that you actually start sinking into yourself, with the stories that you start to actually believe. With the way commercial music is exaggerated to a scary level of falseness sometimes, its so refreshing to hear a rapper who is self-aware enough to take a step back, to get back to total reality again.

Life can have you spinning into worrying web around you due to social media and the way marketing is pushed into your face for breakfast each day. To take a breath and know who you really are, is absolutely priceless and can’t ever be bought.

Finding that way inside: Andy Eppler searches for the special moment on the groovy ‘Much Less Under’

Colorado artist, singer-songwriter and podcast host Andy Eppler brings his unique style to the fore of our minds on ‘Much Less Under‘.

The jazzy start gets you in the mood rather quickly and you get the feeling that this is going to be a song full of much heart and soul. The bouncy intro is a pleasure on the ears as the gritty vocals have so much blues and soul wrapped around the edges here. His voice is real and simmers hot like a hot cuppa coffee, this is a man that is a true storyteller and has clearly lived life to the fullest.

His artwork seems to be the main passion in his life and probably pays the bills as the music is a treat he teases the world, as this is an incredible singer-songwriter. The way he tells stories is a blessing to hear as he tells us about how he was invited into seeing more of their heart but something is holding him back from seeing the whole picture. Perhaps they are either too shy to let you know more or they have been hurt before and are making sure that you are the real deal. Sometimes people let you in but wait a while until they feel the timing is 100% right, if that ever happens.

Andy Eppler is a multi-talented singer-songwriter, artist and podcast host who clearly has the gift of the gab and he sings with such intrigue here on ‘Much Less Under‘. The story of trying to work out what the best way in is with a person that is holding back from what they really want. With his quality band, his strong vocals and a style that has so much soul, this is a song that will have you pondering your next move when you see your crush again.

A terrific insight into the music business with ‘Dear Mr Producer’ from Estella Dawn

Estella Dawn is a USA-based singer who is back with the earth-shattering vocals that impress on her new single called ‘Dear Mr Producer‘.

This is a genuine singer-songwriter who combines elements of Pop, Neo Soul and Rock music with intelligent lyrics and powerful vocals to create lasting original music that blasts through the speakers.

The New Zealand-born, Colorado-based singer has a huge voice that never strains or sounds out of tune. She has that special gift and is using her skills for good things. The lyrics are real and this is a winner. A real special soul who isn’t taking the easy route.

I love how Estella sings and the way that she has made sure that integrity is very high on her agenda. She is not willing to let anyone else control her music career and she is a shining light in the music world. Too often integrity is low down on the list of some performers as they rush to the top, this is not one of those times and for this, we should applaud this fine singer.

Landlocked are here with the incredibly beautiful ‘Jupiter’

Landlocked are a young 5 piece band and they are here with this stunning song called ‘Jupiter‘.

You would backpack to the moon to see them smile. This is a love song about wanting that person to be with you so bad. Perhaps the timing is not quite right but you are so confident that this will happen. You feel like you two are meant to be together and will do anything you can to make it happen. You are willing to do what you can but will they show you that they want you too?

Taken off ‘Time For Nothing‘ this is the debut song from the young band from Castle Rock in Colorado in the USA. I love the sweet vocals on this and the band are so good together. This is a story of love and this makes my heart happy. I like the indie folk vibes and they simmer through the madness of the world. Landlocked are a fine young band and their vibe is one that we should listen to again and again.
